Alright guys, this is the FINAL discount of the season as I'll be shutting everything down for the 2016 season on Labor day September 5th.
I'm going to discount the "A" box to $7.50 plus the cost to ship and the "B" box is $15.00 plus the cost to ship.
Shipping charge is determined by Zip Code as I am using the Regional Flat Rate boxes provided by the Post Office.

If you live up North it really isn't advantageous for you to be buying them. Cooler nights aren't that far away and I would advise against buying the bulbs now thinking you'll be able to hold them over until the Spring to plant. The bulbs ARE going to dry out and will not be viable bulbs to be planting.
For all us folks in the Southern States(especially FL, TX, LA and the other Gulf Coast states) you can still plant them right now and as hot as it is you'll be seeing colorful leaves in No Time!!

To take advantage of this special email me at: Bill@CaladiumBulbs4Less.com
Put End of Season Sale in Subject line.
Include your Zip Code so I can calculate shipping cost. Payments made through PayPal "ARE" preferred but if other arrangements need to be made just let me know.
Please include the email address you use with PayPal, I will send you an invoice from my end for your purchase!!
This Special is ending at Noon on Labor Day!!
ALL requests need to be received by Noon on Labor Day.
I will ship the LAST orders of the season on Tuesday Sep. 6th

If you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to email me!!


Thanks and Happy Gardening!!

Hi Bill!

My backyard is mostly finished and now I can concentrate on the front bed .. I did a test of your most excellent bulbs to see if they could withstand blazing hot sun with minimal rain. They didn't even blink, even with days on end of 95+ degrees and hand watering - I could even skip a few days if necessary!

I want to fill up the rest of the bed with mixed Caladiums .. what would be a good guestimate of how many boxes I'd need to do it?

@caladiums4less

Bill,

Is the B box the "Large" flat rate box that costs $16.75 shipping in US?

@Rainbow - The "B" box is a Regional Flat Rate box the post office has. They are priced according to Zip Code and 99% of the time they are cheaper to use than the regular Flat rate boxes.
The "B" box is a hair smaller than the Large Flat rate box and the "A" box is a hair smaller than the Medium Flat Rate box

My order of caladiums should arrive here by Monday. Oh boy...have I got a lot to learn about them as I have never grown them here in my area.

Could someone direct me to a thread or resource where I could learn about care and maintenance of these gorgeous plants in a wet tropical zone? TIA

As long as you have good drainage you won't have to do much at all. They love heat and water as long as they are not sitting in it. A bit of fertilizer now and then so the leaves can send some energy back to the bulb works well. Bill is always good about including info on how deep to plant the bulbs and their care.

Hi Bill,

Done.

That was what I got in approximately 2 weeks from an August planting. As I was going to be out of town I did set the automatic irrigation to come on so they had heat and water.
